Description

Bridging the gap between current merchandising math textbooks and retail buying textbooks,  The Fundamentals of Retail Buying with Merchandising Math incorporates both buying philosophies and merchandising math. The text's problem-based method of learning incorporates questions and problems that train the reader to think like a buyer and encourage group collaboration and critical thinking. Simulated exercises mimic real-life buying responsibilities. Additionally, the order of the chapters and content within each chapter mimic the training of an assistant buyer in a corporate buying office.  Providing a full, broad view of the retail buyer’s role, the text also includes the key merchandising math formulae that is the basis of all retail buying analysis.
